Hate Tweet #ShameOnVijaySethupathi Trending Nationwide, Deets Inside
Since his new film was released, the versatile Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi has earned a lot of flak on social media. Vijay Sethupathi is all set to make a biopic of Muttaiah Muralidharan, the legendary Sri Lankan cricketer. 800 is the title of the M S Sripathy directed film. Vijay Sethupathi's eerie similarity to Muttaiah Muladharan has been catching eyeballs in the first look posters of 800. However, given the atrocities against Tamils in Sri Lanka, there are many who are opposed to Vijay playing the role of a Sri Lankan. They could not tolerate seeing a Tamil carrying on his chest a Sri Lankan flag!
With thousands of tweets and hate posts against the actor's decision to play the lead in 800, the #ShameOnVijaySethupathi hashtag has been trending nationwide. Neither Vijay Sethupathi nor its makers would have anticipated such an extreme response. We have to see if they are willing or not to go ahead with the project.
